St. Salvator Church (Salvatorska street)

About

St. Salvator Church is one of the most favourite Prague concert halls.

Prague's largest Protestant church of St. Salvator (Holy Saviour) is a rare example of Renaissance sacred architecture commissioned by Emperor Rudolf II.

The construction of St. Salvator Church was a political event, typical for tension in Czech lands before The Thirty Years war. German Lutherans built this church after futile attempts to acquire one of the existing Old Town´s churches for their worships. But only six years after its completion, in 1620, when the violent recatholization took place in the Czech lands, the Lutherans were expelled from the country and the church was handed over to the Catholic order of Paulians.

Currently, the church is Protestant again, and its simple white interior with interesting Baroque tribunes stands as a favourite concert place for its excellent acoustics.
